At FreightExchange we're building a new way for people to buy and sell freight services.

In the past quarter we’ve brought on several Fortune 500 companies so to deliver our ambitious and funded growth plans we are now looking for an experienced, passionate and motivated Senior Full Stack developer to play a key part in our team.

This role is for you if you:

Like working in fast paced environments.
Are as comfortable working on the back-end as the front-end.
Create elegant solutions and user experiences.
Love having responsibility for delivering solutions from beginning to end.
Enjoy engaging with customers and non-technical teammates to analyse and solve their requirements.

To be successful in this role you will have:

At least 8 years experience developing web applications (front and back end) and APIs in Java J2EE using Spring MVC and Hibernate, along with JavaScript/JQuery.
Ability to demonstrate commercial applications that you played in a key role in developing using Java and common front-end languages.
Experience working with technical and non-technical stakeholders to analyse a requirement and then deliver the solution.
Ability to provide accurate estimates of the effort involved in delivering a solution including proactively identifying ways to reduce this.
Ability to carefully consider a problem, propose a solution, implement it and test your code.
AWS experience is highly desirable, including Elastic Beanstalk, RDS, S3, SNS, Lambda, SQS, API Gateway.
Experience integrating with third party applications via APIs - this is especially important for growth activities where we might be pushing user information to another (e.g. CRM) application to carry out marketing/tracking etc.
Strong Java and Javascript including the frameworks.
Demonstrable expert level knowledge of Java, including Spring MVC and Hibernate (this is non-negotiable)
Demonstrable expertise in front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS and Javascript/JQuery.
Ability to use existing styles to produce user friendly, well designed front-end pages is also essential.

Personal Attributes and Prior Experience

We are hiring our technology 2IC so we are seeking someone who is great at communicating with developers and team members in addition to being a hands on developer.

Prior experience developing software in a startup or small company/team is essential.
Very high level of spoken and written English.
Experience in developing and mentoring a team is a plus.
Will get involved creating some processes (e.g. Agile) as time goes on.
Ability to identify and apply existing libraries and frameworks that can speed up development

The technical skills we need are:

Extensive Full Stack Development experience using Java, Spring, Spring MVC, Hibernate, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery.
Strong knowledge of producing and consuming REST APIs.
Experience with Atlassian tools including JIRA and Bitbucket
Demonstrated experience in embedding machine learning algorithms into software solutions or collaborating with data scientists to create “intelligent” software
React and any other tech like this would be nice to have

We are offering an attractive salary, flexible working conditions, zero politics, and the chance to be part of a team that is genuinely changing how technology is used in an industry. Our offices are based in Surry Hills, close to Central Station in Sydney, Australia, so you must be able to work at that location.

An immediate start is available to qualified candidates.

You will also be building an amazing team around you and working with all areas of the business to develop our platform further.

This role forms an important part of our growing team, so when you apply, send us your CV but also introduce yourself and tell us about the great things you’ve created. You can either apply here or email us at jobs@freightexchange.com.au.
